excellent display piece or jewelry bowl
finished w/ food-grade Danish oil, varnish, and bees wax
made by Zach LaPerriere
Sitka, Alaska 2016
bowl measures 7 3/4" X 1 1/4"
This bowl had been set aside for a gallery and despite being from 2016, this is the first time it's for sale on my website.
It's a beautiful piece with a small through-knot in the edge of the base of the bowl. I also left a bit of live-edge on one side from right under the bark layer. The grain shimmers in good light.
This will make a handsome jewelry bowl or bowl for small items.
Story: This tree died in front of a historic downtown Sitka home and was given to me by the granddaughter of the man who planted the tree.
At a recent market in Juneau a woman bought a bowl from this same tree. We got to talking and after I learned she grew up in Sitka 60 years ago, I asked her name and soon realized that the man who planted the tree was her uncle.
